That file sounds to me like a round-robin database used by rrdtool for graphing. Ntop is most likely not creating the file, but rather the output of ntop is used to update the file by some other script. If you give a little more information, we can figure out what's going on.

rrd files need to be updated on a regular basis (5 minutes), so look into what cron jobs are scheduled, it should point you to the script that is using ntop and updating the .rrd file.

ntop can create files using the rrdtool libraries.

From the main menu (probably: http://yoursystem:3000/)
Select plugins , RRD and 'arbitrary graphs',
On that page select IP_VoipBytes + various parameters.

Kind Regards,

BTW, that should have been Voipbytes from the available options.
